Buffalo’s run defense was solid each of the first three weeks, but Sunday New England took advantage of the Bills nickel personnel and rumbled for almost 250 yards. Bryan Scott called their effort against the run “an epic failure.”
“One of our goals was to stop the run, and obviously it was an epic failure when it came to that,” said Scott. “They did not show us anything we did not prepare for. That’s why it hurts. Yes, we lost the game, but there were many aspects of the game where we beat ourselves.”
Nick Barnett was most troubled by the inability to get the momentum back once the Patriots started piling up scoring drives.
“We can’t allow them to get rolling like this,” said Barnett. “We let em get rolling downhill, and the next thing you know, they made a lot of good plays, but we gave up a lot of good plays. We played Santa Claus with a lot of different things, and we cant give a good team like this plays. So that’s it. Gotta go watch film, and get better.”
